First year of woeking in Ghana


Recommended Posts

Well who would have guessed that I would survive the year here in deepest darkest Africa.

With everything being so different from what I am used to at home in South Africa.

Last year this time I was still wandering around bewildered at the difference. Few tarred highways and those roads that are tarred are full of potholes. Small villages along every road with the local merchants trying to make a living which ever way they can offering goods and services.

The most uncontrolled traffic I have ever seen but surprising few accidents.

Weather is hot and humid. Last year the heavens opened up every day with falls of around 50 mm being common.

I started out at Akyem site and then moved to Ahafo for a few months. Now back at Akyem.

Our company WBHO construction is part of the contract building a new gold mine complex for the American company Newmont. We will be finishing our present contract in April next year but this could be extended.

I get to go home every 10 weeks for 14 days of hectic bussiness and socialising. Sometimes its good returning to Ghana for a rest.

Thats just a little account of the past 12 months

Thanks once again for your thoughts and well wishes.

To all those still fighting this terrible disease I wish you strength.
